I take issue with Nicholas Kenyon's claim (Response, 27 July) that Mozart's symphonies, apart from the very few late, great works, have never been part of the classical canon. I have never heard this view expressed seriously in nearly 40 years' experience of playing and recording Mozart symphonies, late and early, throughout Europe and beyond, in period instrument performance, with normal orchestras and hybrids. We know that after a couple of symphonies composers start to get the hang of it and by number nine or so, with a bit of luck, might become great. The extraordinary Mozart was great by his ninth symphony and wrote 30 more. The piano concertos do occupy a special place in the classical canon, a framework for his personal contact with and knowledge of countless musicians and styles on his extensive travels around Europe. But arguably, without Mozart's colossal quantity of symphonic music, which continually inspires musicians and the public and dwarfs everyone except Haydn, there is no classical canon.Jonathan WilliamsWelwyn, Hertfordshire
